can't seem to sleep on my side!
I can't seem to get comfortable on my side (either side) and stay there when I sleep. I've only been a back sleeper for a year or two, but, now I can't seem to make anything else work! I know I'm supposed to avoid sleeping on my back, but, my shoulders are even starting to hurt. Any suggestions?

Re: can't seem to sleep on my side!
My only suggestion is one of those long pillows that adjust (kind of) to your body, don't know what they are called. I always been a tummy sleeper so sleeping on my side was very hard, I just slept between two pillows, honestly it did not allow me to sleep better, it was a bit annoying after a while, so I guess after all I was no help.

I'm not of much help either. I've been trying a pillow between my knees but I always end up on my back or kind of on my stomach.

I can sleep on my right side but now my left. I know that is the one they suggest. But when I do, I get a pulling feeling in my uterus that really hurts. Baby stays on right side anyway. But I am most comfy on my back.

I used a body pillow to support my tummy and a pillow between my knees - which seemed to help with hip pain.

Sorry you are uncomfortable right now. Hugs!!
